"Mustangs Helping Veterans Helping Mustangs"
What we do
Mustang Journey re-homes America’s confined mustangs through training programs assisted by military veterans.
Mustang Journey adopts mustangs from the Bureau of Land Management.
For the next three months, under the supervision of certified trainers, military veterans volunteer to help prepare the mustangs for adoption.
As mustangs are adopted out of Mustang Journey into loving homes, Mustang Journey adopts new mustangs from the BLM to train.
Who Is It For?
There are, tragically, well over 14,000 military veterans in Greater Cincinnati living with PTSD, and thousands more with traumatic brain injury (TBI). Working with horses is proven to provide therapeutic benefits to these deserving veterans. Mustang Journey gives veterans the opportunity to help gentle, train and prepare for adoption, wild mustangs which have been rescued from crisis situations.
Because herds of wild horses are starving and taking up resources needed in the west, the BLM has rounded up fifty thousand wild mustangs and placed them in holding pens. They are being cared for at a cost to taxpayers of approximately $80 million per year. And the numbers continue to increase.
“The mustangs saved my life. Had it not been for them and the training program, I never would have gotten the healing I needed.” - a local veteran
What's Our Story?
